Hello everyone. We hope everyone is well.

Since it seems we are all going to be spending more time indoors for the next wee while, I thought an appropriate first recommendation might be the BOOK READER ACTIVITY BADGE.

To gain this badge, Beavers need to:

  1. Design a cover for your favourite book. Be able to tell us all why this book is your favourite.
  2. Read at least six books. Books you have read on an e-reader count too.
  3. Show that you know how to look after a book.
  4. Make a bookmark and explain what bookmarks are for.

Or, if you’re looking for something a bit more hands-on, how about trying the BUILDER ACTIVITY BADGE. To gain this badge, Beavers need to:

  1. Design a model of something you would like to build. The design can be on paper or a computer.
  2. Make a list of all the items you are going to need to build your idea.
  3. Build your idea using the list of items you need. Your model could be made using building blocks, gears or recycled items such as toilet roll tubes or cardboard boxes.
  4. Be able to explain to us all how long your build took to finish, if anything went wrong and what you would change if you built it again.

Remember, please keep all your hard work so you can bring it along when we return. Feel free to post any pictures, progress reports or comments on our Facebook page or e-mail them to info@7thwhitburnscouts.org.uk.

If none of these badges are of interest, all the Beaver Scout Activity badges can be found at:

There’s also a whole lot of activities at:

to be carried out indoors.

Good luck and get Scouting everyone!

Scouting Can Continue…

Hello everyone

We hope everyone is well.

Scout meetings and events may be suspended at the moment but that doesn’t mean Scouting has to stop altogether!

We’ve added a new section to our website – Self-Scouting! The plan is to post information on activities and badges that all our young members can work on until meetings resume.

Keep “evidence” for the badges and bring it along when we return. You could even post pictures, comments, advice on our Facebook page or e-mail it to info@7thwhitburnscouts.org.uk and we will get it on the website.

Keep safe everyone please, look after everyone and keep Scouting!

Coronavirus – Scout Group Activities

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Scout Association has instructed that all Scout meetings and events be suspended until further notice.

Since the safety and wellbeing of all our members – young and less-so – is always our number one priority, all Whitburn Scout Group activities will no longer take place until we are advised it is safe to do so.

We will of course post here, on our Facebook page and through OSM any developments when they happen.

Please look after yourself and others and we will be back as soon as we are able to be.
